Yellowheart (Euxylophora paraensis or common name Pau Amarello) grows on Brazil's Eastern coastline from the equator South to Rio. The color in the heartwood is a pronounced vivid yellow with creamy white sapwood. There is striping if one looks closely at the grain between the rings. It is also called Brazilian Satinwood for the iridescent ribbon figure that is in quarter sawn stock.
Our stock has air dried for one year months and is completely wax sealed. It is considered partially air dried and is ideal for twice turning. The bigger the piece the more moisture it will contain. These blanks are 95% clear or better! This air dried Yellowheart is much easier to turn than kiln dried Yellowheart. This material is from a hand-selected & specially cut log.
Several end checks 1-2" long at one end on one face. These should easily turn away if you're making a big bowl. Even if you cut this into 4 blanks the checks will still turn away.
